"fox & friends" gets started right now. >> hi everyone. welcome to a brand-new week of "fox & friends" where of course we have snow. we're out of snow shoveling revenue. we have to do it ourselves now. >> we have stepped into the apparently live version of the movie "frozen." >> this morning i'm sitting in for steve doocy. our thoughts and prayers go
3:02 am
out for the doocy family this morning because steve lost his father this weekend. our thoughts and prayers with the doocy family. steve out in kansas now. that is his father jim. sad times in the doocy home. >> he is 81 years old. they were together a couple of weeks ago because steve was named -- >> kansan of the year. >> so he had a chance to see all of that. now they're all together in kansas. >> which is a great blessing they could be together for that award. our thoughts and prayers go out to steve. we're thinking of you buddy. >> he's a great guy. he used to come out here a lot to watch the show. we'll talk about that. meanwhile, let's move ahead with what's going on in the actual show. if you watched the sunday shows you saw a massive push back by democrats trying to get ahead of the back news that came out during the week that not directly but indirectly the
3:03 am
c.b.o. estimated that 2.5 million americans will not be working extra hours or any hours because of the incentives or disincentives obamacare gives you to join the workforce. i'll give you an example. if you look at what doug elmendorf said, of the c.b.o., he said the lower supply of wage workers is because [inaudible] to buy health insurance. the subsidies are fairly large in dollar terms. if you are getting a lot of money, you're not making a lot of money. if you start making more money the subsidies drop so the incentives won't be there. so the democrats have a problem. how do i spin the story in a way that is not going to be disastrous? >> right. you have that money being taken away if you get a job in terms of the affordable care act. and the 2.5 million jobs are going to be coming out of that middle class. the democrats have a problem on their hand.
3:04 am
the administration has a problem on their hands when it comes to jobs and the economy right now. what do you do when the narrative isn't working so well? you change it when the reality isn't fitting what you set out to do. and then you possibly spin it. you listen to this and you decide. who needs a job any way? congressman keith ellison and senator chuck schumer. >> people are going to be able to retire. >> a single mom raising three kids has to keep a job because of health care can now spend some time raising those kids. that's a family value. >> what about denmark? the fact of the matter is we need a better work life balance. ask a working mother if she could use a few more hours in a day to take care of her family. that is what's really going on. >> as a working mother i would like to say i actually appreciate my job and i think there is a certain dignity and pride that comes with being able to provide some sort of
3:05 am
income. i'm sure i'm not the only one that feels that way. i don't like when someone speaks for me. >> the problem is you get a job and you feel so locked in. that is what they're saying. the spin is now no more lock in. so if you get a job and don't like that job, you can leave because you know everyone is hiring across the country. so many people are hiring, if you don't like your job you can float across the street and start there. >> if you want to be a painter and sculptor, how dare you get locked into a job. usually people who want to pursue a dream, you do that on the side. when you're ready to go, your business is ready to hum, then you jump. trey gowdy weighed in. >> the liberals and the democrats want you to believe you'll have more time to write poetry and you can sit around and figure out whether infinity is a number or just a concept. that is great until you go buy your kid a birthday present or try to pay the heating bill. go give your interpretation
3:06 am
of a poem to a clerk. they're going to want money. >> to his point, i was an art major and i tried to barter a painting for something. >> i can't pay for gas but would you like this sunflower painting i made for you. >> i'll give you a real-life example. a friend of mine was a painter and a sculptor. what he did was have another job 9 to 5 and then she would go to flea markets and buy booths and try to get that going. she would do great on the weekends. when she was finally ready to open up five days a week, she actually did that. but she didn't demand that society allow her to get health insurance so she could pursue her dream. she got two other jobs in order to do what she wanted to do until she was ready. >> mike roe from dirty jobs wants to talk about hard work. there is a new ad that's gone viral now. a lot of people loving this new wal-mart ad mike has
3:07 am
attached himself to about getting america back to work. take a listen to this. >> at one time i made things and i took pride in the things i made. and my engines cranked. i opened my doors to all and together we filled pallets and trucks. i was mighty. and then one day gears stopped turning. i'm still here, and i believe i will rise again. we will build things and build families and build dreams. it's time to get back to what america does best. because work is a beautiful
3:08 am
thing. >> the crawler at the bottom, $250 billion being put into building manufacturing in the country. so putting money behind the great ads. >> president obama has said manufacturing jobs are not coming back to the country. they're gone. they're gone. the sad truth is when you go into wal-mart most of the stuff on the shelves th china. even the meat is an amalgamation of meat from argentina and different parts of the world. it would be nice if we can get manufacturing jobs back and running. who knows. but if you listen to the obama administration they're gone and we need to start thinking of a new economy in this country. >> i'm okay that some jobs aren't there is a bad thing, but when the narrative turns to paint something, draw, do something at home. there are bills to be paid and i think the american people are smart enough. let us know what you think. do you think working is overrated? does working give you pride, dignity? respect? we'd love to hear. >> fundamentally everyone
3:09 am
wants health insurance and sometimes you choose a job because they have better benefits. if you're at a job and maybe if the entry level position is not correct, maybe the next position is great and that's a path. you're creating a career arc. why is everyone using the term trapped? i have this to say when it comes to politics. if you have somebody telling you work less, get full benefits and vote for me, that sounds good on its surface. >> because i'll take care of you. i'm going to provide for you. it is kind of hard to argue with that. let's check in with heather nauert. she's standing by. >> thanks, clay. i hear you're going to take care of us. great ofrplt everybody have a good weekend? good morning to all, hope you had a great weekend. a suspect involved in the murder of border patrol agent brian terry is set to face justice later today. terry was killed as a result of the botched fast and furious gun running
3:10 am
scandal. the suspect pleaded guilty. arianias faces 30 years in prison. two men involved in that killing are still on the loose. a horrific deadly crash caught on camera. >> what is he doing? am i being [bleep] right now? excuse my cuss words. he's on the wrong side. >> that cell phone footage taken by a driver shows an s.u.v. on the other side of the road driving the wrong way. then that vehicle slams head on into a car of college kids. the s.u.v. driver dies and that crash kills four fraternity brothers almost instantly. >> you just don't know how to register it. i didn't know how to register it this morning. these were great guys. they meant a lot to us. >> that happening in
3:11 am
florida. police do not know if drugs are alcohol were involved. remember this? president obama in the months leading up to the 2012 election insisting same-sex rights were up to the states to decide. today eric holder introduces a policy to override states rights. same-sex couples must be granted privileges in states even in states where it is not recognized by the law. it is the latest push by the administration to bypass states on states rights. last june it gave same-sex couples the right to file tax returns no matter where they live. a russian skater so excited over winning the bronze medal she literally lost her shirt. she unzipped her suit to cool down because it is hot under there but quickly

zipped it up. she later laughed saying the suits are so tight she needed to breathe. you can't blame her but oops on camera in front of a bunch of people. those are your headlines. see you in a bit. >> i cannot believe this decision that nbc makes every year not to allow us to use the footage within 24 hours. it helps sell the sports. they want people to tune in to that soap opera for two and a half weeks yet they want us to use stills like it's 1940. >> they are spending millions of dollars so why not go all out. >> i'm sorry you have to hear this argument, elisabeth. they let you use it. we were showing super bowl highlights. >> don't they belong to us all? can't we all just get along? 12 minutes past the hour. we told you about subway using rubber in their bread. turns out they are not the

3:17 am
construction jobs? >> it is an element in the weakness in the economy. that's true, the weather has been bad and it has affected the economy. but what you're really looking at here is a failure of policy. we've just not produced long-term growth. now we've got a downturn in manufacturing, we've got a downturn in the housing market. very slight but it is a downturn. we had all these great hopes at the end of last year, we're going to get a robust 2014. those hopes have been dashed again and again and again. every year you get these bright hopes of a good year coming, and every single year those hopes are dashed. >> do you think it is also a philosophy thing? you brought up too as democrats try to explain how people could be working less and still getting health care that it's better for our lifestyle. >> just a moment ago you featured keith ellison, democrat from minnesota. he said working less is a good thing. americans work too much any way. >> more than anybody else. >> it's good to spend more time at home so you can

cook and you don't have to do takeout. that is an attempt to put a positive spin on the job losses that are coming from obamacare and the jobless winter that we're just going through. a complete reverse and now less work is good. that's an astonishing thing. i think it's a reason -- they're trying to spin what is obviously going to be a very weak economy all over again. and policy is the basic problem here. president obama doesn't have a policy for growth, vigorous, robust private-sector growth. he has not got a policy for that. he doesn't have it. >> right. when you talk about the weather though, you say manufacturing, when it comes to manufacturing that should not be a factor. when it comes to construction that could be a factor. >> no, i'm saying it was affected. the weather was a factor but it is a minor factor in the overall scheme of things. car sales down last month. factory order not good. the housing market slightly
3:19 am
lower, the jobs market terrible. flatout terrible. you put the numbers out at the start of the segment. only 113,000 jobs last month. only 75,000 the month before that. that is very weak economy. very weak job creation. >> stuart, when can you see you? >> 9:20 eastern time sharp on the button. >> we'll be there taking attendance. be there on time. stuart, thanks so much. great to see you. 19 minutes after the hour. straight ahead, this burglar picked the wrong woman to mess with. >> he said that crazy [bleep] has a gun. >> that was a tease. this homeowner taking matters into her own hands and wait until you hear the rest of the story. and using vitamin c to combat a cold turns out doesn't work. our next guest has the truth about cold cures that you need to know. spit out the o.j. all for naught.

3:25 am
can increase blood pressure by decreasing that. >> you should let your doctor know if you're taking that? >> or you can switch to nasal sprays. >> what about vitamin c? what is your take on that? >> unfortunately vitamin c is not as helpful once you have the symptoms. vitamin c can boost your immune system but once he get sick it is not as helpful. >> build up the supply before you get sick but not in the moment? expectorants? >> not that helpful. there are two types of cough medications. suppressants and expectorants. suppressants help you manage your cough, that the stuff you take before you go to bed. expectorants induce the cough and make things work. >> pay attention to the fine line there.

by the way, if a cold does -- if it is accompanied by a fever, do any of these things help and what should you do? >> these can help but if you have a fever you need to see the doctor. we're talking about a fever of 101. for some people if they have more symptoms, they should see the doctor earlier. a lot of times when you have a cold you can get a bacterial super infection and those can be life threatening. >> antihis means. >> if somebody has a cold that has been lasting for more than a couple of weeks, you might try it. things like allegra. if some people get the cold virus it triggers an allergic reaction so they can have the same symptoms, runny eyes, runny nose and people might not realize what they're battling at that point is allergies, not the cold itself. >> thank you for drawing the line between what works and what doesn't when it comes to the common cold. next on the rundown, he

rights in uganda that made you want to write this story? >> they really didn't exist. it is generational, not something dictated. it comes up over many generations. young men are raised to treat women a certain way and women are raised to accept that. that's really the sad part of it is that the women don't really understand there is a better way for them to live their life and that there are, there's a future for women in uganda just as there are here in the united states, for example. >> why were you in that region to begin with? >> i was there on a foreign aid project. i was working for a consortium of three organizations. bono and allie hughson, they were part of the coalition. the world life conservation society in new york was the second leg of the stool. the third leg was an organization in san diego called invisible children, which is a large n.g.o. very active in northern
3:48 am
uganda in trying to find this warlord over there, joseph kony. >> you're working on this next book on pakistan? do you see similarities on women's rights? >> absolutely. pakistan has terrible issues there for women's rights. so there are similarities. but there are also big cultural differences. those differences will come out in the book. >> what have you been hearing from folks in that region? any other political interest from those regions that don't like what you're doing? stirring the pot, so to speak? >> that is an interesting question. i have a lot of friend in uganda, local people that i know. i have sent copies of my book to those people and told them what i'm doing. and actually they're quite thrilled with what i'm doing. i think getting this kind of a message out even on a show like this will be music to their ears. >> that's wonderful. i hope our audience goes over to pick up the book. it's called "under the

but heather nauert has news. >> we'll team you up with cheryl casone, how to get a job with human resources. >> right. >> all right. good morning to you all. few minutes after the hour. a suspect involved in the murder of border patrol agent brian terry is set to face justice later today. he was killed as a result of the botched fast and furious scandal. he pleaded guilty and part of bandits responsible for opening fire on terry's team. he faces 30 years in prison. two men who are also involved in that killing are still on the loose. a horrific crash in florida is caught on camera. >> what are you he's on the wrong side.
4:03 am
>> that cell phone footage was taken by another driver. it shows an suv on the other side of the road driving the wrong way. then that suv slams head on into a car of college kids. the suv driver dies and that crash kills four fraternity brothers almost instantly. >> you don't know how to register it. i didn't know how to register it this morning. they were great guys. they meant a lot to us. >> people don't know if drugs and alcohol were involved in the crash. remember president obama in the months leading up to the 2012 election, saying same sex marriage rights were up to the states. that's changing when eric holder enacts a new policy, going forward in cases handled by the f.b.i. and other federal agencies, same sex couples will be granted spousal privilege in court, even in states where marriages are not recognized by the law. this just the latest push by the
4:04 am
administration to overrule same sex rights in the states. last june it gave gay and lesbian couples the right to file joint tax returns no matter where they lived. all eyes glued to mariah carey and the bet honor spokeny in washington. the 43-year-old singer -- look at this. a jaw dropping cleavage bearing tight black dress. she debuted a new song on stage. how do you keep that thing up? >> glue. >> i guess. yeah. that show will air later this month. >> you guys had a problem with that dress. why? >> guys are serious right now across the nation. >> oh, boy. >> thanks, heather. last week the cbo report came out, nonpartisan, projection that stated 2.5 million jobs are set to be lost or reduced due to the affordable care act. indirect result of the fact that
4:05 am
you will be getting more money if you work less to pay for health insurance under the affordable care act. so then taking away the incentive for americans to work. certainly had a lot of people thinking that was ad about thing. 2 $.5 million sucked out of the middle class full time. doesn't sound like good news. but keith ellisson said this could be a great thing. listen to the spin. >> we're going to have parents being able to come homeworking reasonable hours, people are going to be able to retire. people might be able to actually cook dinner rather than have to order out and get takeout. >> what about germany and denmark? >> the fact is, we need a better work-life balance. ask a work mother if she could use a few more hours in the day to take care of her family. >> how do you make that leap, though? from a few more extra hours in the day -- of course, any work mom would love that, but that's a leap. 2.5 million jobs lost as a
quote
4:06 am
result of it. what democrats are trying to argue is that, well, this will create the opportunity of no more job lock in. if you don't like your job, you can find another job or do some art. >> the other thing is there is a glory and dignity to work for a living and putting that time in and setting an example for your family, rather than playing tag or kick ball every day at 3. joining us now, donald trump, who hauls had a job. the only thing that stops him from work is sleep. he needs about a couple hours a night. how do you weigh in on this debate when it comes to obamacare and working less to cook more? >> the democrats have very much changed -- notice when this originally came out a couple weeks ago with the 2 1/2 million jobs-plus, and it looks like plus, plus, they were shocked. they were stunned and they were trying to defend it and they had nothing to say. and then all of a sudden, you watched what was going on about a week later, there was just
4:07 am
nothing they could do to justify it. a week later, they started talking about, well, isn't this a wonderful thing because people that don't have good jobs can do this and that. so they found a really wonderful justification for themselves and for elections. but not a good justification for the country because it takes incentive away from people to work and we really have so many people -- look, we have a lot of people that are unemployed and really want to get jobs. we have a lot of people that are unemployed that have no idea of getting a job. they love the system. they don't have to work. they're being taken care of and it's a problem. but the democrats really put a big spin on this and i have to say, from their standpoint, it was a brilliant job. nobody is even mentioning -- go back and look at the first three days. they were all in shock. they said this is terrible. we have to do something. some of them were saying we have to do something about obamacare. now all of a sudden they're saying, what a humane thing it is. >> it's hard to be the party that says we're going to that i
quote
4:08 am
these things away from you. you don't want to work? you don't have to work. we're going to have a system that supports you to not even work any^. >> no republicans have to have an uphill slog on this too, right? >> it is tough for the republicans because a lot of people are in this category. you're talk being a big category. if anybody comes out against it or if anybody goes against the new democratic line of stuff, they're going to be -- it's going to be hard in certain areas. now, you know what solves it? when the economy crashes, when the country goes to total hell and everything is a disaster, then you'll have riots to go back to where we used to be when we were great. but the fact is that it's not easy on republicans 'cause you have a lot of people that like their lives right now without working. >> isn't this actually killing the american dream, though? the desire to work, the dignity that comes with it, or is this just deception because the reality isn't working and they need a different narrative? >> elisabeth, it's total
4:09 am
deception. there is no question about that. and again, i haven't seen anybody do it. but again, go back and see that first 48 hours. it's total deception. and it's very bad and certainly not the american dream. it's a different kind of american dream. it's an american dream where you don't have to do anything and you can live very nicely. look, a lot of people live better without having a job than they do with a job. and i've had it where you have people and you want to hire them, but they can't take the job for a period of nine months because they're doing better now than they will with a job. many employers are having that, where you can't hire people very simply because people really don't want to work. they have another nine months to go. >> yeah. it's strange. you need those real life stories of people who are hire not guilty this workplace, you and need people who long-term unemployed keep them from getting in the game. now let's talk about the olympics. the opening ceremonies are done. it's the four ring circus. we did not get the fifth ring.
4:10 am
we're still waiting for it to show up. evidently the flower didn't flourish. now we have mike mccall, chairman of homeland security saying this, listen. >> i think this particular olympics i've never seen a greater threat, certainly in my lifetime. i think there is a high degree probability that something is -- something will detonate, something will go off, but i do think it's probably most likely to happen outside of the ring of steel in the olympic village. >> your thoughts? security? >> mike is a good republican from texas and i hear a very good guy, but i think we should give the russians a little bit of leeway here. they spent billions and billions, a number that was beyond any number i've ever heard -- >> most spent ever. >> oh, frankly ridiculous. but they spent all of this money and i think we should not be knocking them at this point. then we wonder why they don't like us and why they're eating our lunch in every country that
quote quote
4:11 am
we're dealing with against them. >> does it -- >> i really think we should say look, they're really out there doing their job. every time i turn on television, we're showing about a guy knocking down a door 'cause his door lock didn't work, and i will tell you something, if i'm putin, i'm not happy about it. and i know for a fact he's not happy about it. when i went to russia with the miss universe packagents, he contacted me and was so nice and i mean, the russian people were so fantastic to us, i can say this, they are doing -- they're outsmarting us at many terms. their leaders, whether you call them smarter or more cunning or whatever, but they're outsparting us. if you look at syria and other places, they're outsmarting us. i really think we should not be knocking that country with all of the money and all of the guts they put into it and, hey, i'm a fan of our country. but we have to get along with people a little bit and -- >> i think you're right.
4:12 am
everything you live your life by deadline and they weren't finished. they had seven years. i don't think you're going too far to comment on it. >> yeah. but you know with a? wonderful opening ceremony, and they did a have problem with the rings and that was fine of the because lot of people thought it was magnificent. when they put their guts into it and they put the tremendous amount of -- in all fairness, a ridiculous amount of money, but they put all of that money and hard work and we're knocking every little thing. they don't like the food, they don't like this or that. i don't know. my attitude is it's not that important. i think we should give them the benefit of the doubt and then go on and win something important later on because they're not going to be so opposed to what we're doing. >> perhaps not bite the hand that feeds right now. >> i've been watching it and frankly, it looks very good. it looks likes they're doing a very good job. >> hopefully we'll be talking about the sports soon. thanks, donald.

welcome back. protesters in north carolina hitting the streets for the naacp's moral march this weekend. rallying against policies like the state's strict voter i.d. law which a majority of the state actually supports. look at this list of dos and don'ts for the marchers. this was a flyer that was handed out. the group tells participants, do bring photo identification, driver's licenses, passport or other valid photo i.d. with you and keep it on your person at all times. so if americans need an i.d. to march, why shouldn't they need one to vote? here to weigh in is our guest. nice to see you. your thoughts when you saw that flyer in the news as a result of the bring your own i.d. to this march? >> this is beyond hypocritical. but the naacp has no credibility and really no shame. from the comments they made about senator tim scott to demanding folks to bring an i.d. when they're against voter i.d. for voting purposes, this really exposes their liberal ideology.
4:18 am
they support liberal policies and liberal politicians, not conservatives, especially not black conservatives. they don't support. >> you're referencing senator tim scott. there he is on our screen. i want to give our viewers a sense of what they said about him. this was north carolina naacp chief reverend william barber. he said this about him. a ventriloquist with always find a good dummy. the extreme right wing finds a black guy to be senator and claims he's the first black senator since reconstruction. then he goes to washington, d.c. and articulates the agenda of the tea party. >> this is politically driven. when you think about it, what they're trying to do is whip up black voters to drive into the midterm elections. this is happening in north carolina. there's a key senate race going on with kay hagin and she supporting obama's failed policies in terms of obamacare. so they're really trying to whip up individuals to vote, whip up emotions. what they should be critical about are obama's failed policies, his energy policy that's driving energy prices
4:19 am
through the roof, high unemployment nationwide, especially really bad in the black community, over 12%. over 40% among young blacks. that's what they should be critical of. but they're not. they're covering for him. they played a victim card. they play the race card. that's what the naacp does. >> what does this say about their protest, that they're concerned about security. they want you to say who you say you are because you're going to show them i.d. when you show up to the protest to be part of it, and yet when you go to vote, isn't it also important to know who you are when you're registering a vote? >> because they don't care. you would think they would want to uphold the integrity our voting system, but instead, they inject the race card to whip up emotion and try to get people on their side. this is their m.o., and it's not about liberating black individuals and empowerment. they play the victim card, the race card. that's their bottom line. >> why do you think that they don't support black conservatives? you tried to go and have a booth set up at one of their
4:20 am
conventions. >> they don't want to hear about small government, personal responsibility. tim scott is the perfect example of someone who overcame his challenges. he's a? either. he's -- senator. he's a small business owner. his success story blows away their myth that blacks need special treatment and are victims. >> wonderful insights. always great to see you. >> thanks. coming up next on the show, a record number of u.s. taxpayers renouncing their citizenship. so what's motivating the big move? then an iraqi spent eight years risking his life with the navy seals, saving countless americans' lives. a job so dangerous even now he can't reveal his identity. this morning that interpreter, the co-author of "code name," share their story, coming up next. ♪ ♪ [ sniffles, coughs ] shhhh!

4:26 am
me brother and part of the seal community. >> grew up in mosul, you knew the area. and when did you join our side and how long did you go for? >> in 2003, after i try so hard to work with americans and i couldn't find any chance. by accident i start work with military police and from there we have a lot of successful mission and the seals, they hear about my name and they let me join them. >> how did you get the name johnny walker? >> johnny originally was called walker and the americans don't want to use the real iraqi names 'cause it's very dangerous for the interpreters. so they started calling him walker, which is just kind of a basic name. i think one night someone saw that maybe johnny was having a few drinks or some sort of liquid refresher and said you're not walker, you're johnny walker and the name was born. >> you've served in the military in 1987, right?
4:27 am
what made you realize that americans were here for the right reason and this is the change i have to support? >> because they changed the iraqi -- they want to give freedom to my people. this is the right side to join. >> that's what i think. but why do so many iraqis not think that way? >> it's about education, things how you look at it and how you believe it. >> i think like the majority of iraqis want peace, want democracy, but like anywhere else, the people who are violent and are very loud, that's what everyone else thinks, well, that's the majority. but it's not the majority. >> what was life growing up like growing up under saddam hussein's iraq? >> there is no dream. there is nothing. >> you just get up and you grow up and you don't think you have
4:28 am
a shot at having any type of success or happiness? >> yeah. and that is how you feel all the time. if he says anything, maybe they put you in jail for many, many years. american forces is my dream because when i am 20 years old, i play basketball and as jim know, i love harlem team and cowboy movies. i still remember, you know. so all these things i think make me to become american. >> you talk about how hard it was to get here, but he won everybody over and now you live in america and how do you feel about living here? >> you know, for me it looks like my dream goes through and every day when i look at my kids, i say thanks god and god bless america. they gave them safe, future, school, everything. >> and these seals say thanks to

night off with a walk on the red carpet with a bag over his head. what's up with shia? for the answer, let's go to somebody who knows strange behavior, michael tammero. >> excuse you! i was young and i needed the money! >> we have footage of that! how do you explain this? are we being put on? >> if we are, he better get to it quickly because he's starting to get a bad reputation and people aren't going to want to work with this guy. a year ago, he was starring with alec baldwin, he was bounced from the show. baldwin says the kid has an attitude problem. now when alec baldwin says that, there is an issue. >> do you think this is like the joaquin phoenix when he was punking everybody pretending to be crazy? >> i hope so, because there doesn't seem to be any drug use going on. >> although he didn't look normal in that shot. >> and he has gotten into a couple of bar brawls. the latest movie he was shooting
4:39 am
in london, brad pitt had to take him aside and say, what's going on with you? he pulled his own tooth out to get into character. he gets into these competitions with his fellow actors to see who can be the better method actor. >> he pulled his own tooth out? >> he pulled his own tooth out. a lot of actors were complaining because he wasn't showering for weeks on end to get into the idea -- he was living in a r ii movie. if it's a performance art or -- he's starting to get a reputation. >> let's talk about justin bieber because it's been five minutes. we have more facts about the night he was arrested. >> apparently last week when the story came out he was arrested for going 27 miles an hour. that was kind of hard to believe. it turns out he was actually going 136 miles an hour on the julia tunnel causeway which connects midtown miami to miami beach, six-lane highway. highly trafficked.
4:40 am
so it seems cops had been waiting for the moment to pull him aside and arrest him. so this is another case where this doesn't -- it's starting to feel like it's not going to have a happy ending. >> 136 miles an hour versus 27, there is a bit of a difference. >> what 19-year-old kid can control a kid like that? >> what person? >> let alone a 19-year-old. >> in a circle, yes. even in that it's tricky. >> you hope the night in prison straightened him out and no, he's not impervious to the criminal justice system. >> the next day he went to the beach and drinking on the beach. >> and his father was with him stirring the whole thing up. >> i wanted to end on a happy note and you come up with that. can i at least end upbeat? >> go to in the foxlight.com and look at good celebrity interviews and follow me on twitter. >> you're always happy on twitter. >> thank you so much. >> coming up here, a close call caught on camera after a giant wave crashes over this wall.

and the 138th westminster dog show kicking off today. more than 2800 dogs all over the world competing in the country's most prominent pooch pageant and coming up, one of those dogs will be joining us here in studio. his incredible story he claims is true, getting national attention and you've got to hear it from him. he joins us live. from being crowned miss america in 2003 to being elected as the first female african-american republican in congress, it's something erika harold hopes to achieve this november and that's why she's part of our rising star series. joining us now, erika harold, herself. good morning. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> so take us back, let us connect the dots a bit. from miss america you then went to harvard and it was there, oddly enough, that you found your own republican roots. true? >> when i was a student at the university of illinois, that's when i knew i was a conservative. then when i was at harvard law school, i had the good fortune
4:46 am
of studying constitutional law and developed an appreciation for our country's constitutional framework. >> so how are you now going to get around, in your mind, the chicago style of politics? i know you're outside of that, but certainly there is a perception to be avoided, some would say. >> it's so true. one of the things that's helpful is that i come from outside of the political establishment. so i would be able to go to washington, d.c. with a sense of independence and be able to challenge and speak to power when necessary. speaking to people throughout the district, people are really tired of politics as usual and i think that we can do a lot better. >> let me ask you, as a woman and as a republican, is there pressure for you to sort of take the other side of the political aisle? >> i know that when people look at me, they usually assume that i'm a democrat. when i talk about my values and standing for them on the constitution, i explain that those are really the values that can really empower women, especially economically. >> we're not hearing that,
4:47 am
right? so we hear a lot about how republicans are antiwoman, attack on women. tell us what people are missing out there about the republican party and the message for women, for minorities in this country. >> so often we hear about the supposed war on women. when you look at the party's fundamental principles, empowering the individual, limiting government, limiting taxation, those are principles that empower women. young women are some of the fastest growing business owners. if you're a small business owner, being able to have less regulation and more autonomy is economically empowering. and during the course of my candidacy, i'm reaching out to women and minorities and young people in particular because i want them to know how those principles can really empower their lives. >> what's your response? the cbo report, 2.5 million jobs set to be lost in the middle class as a result of obamacare. we have a situation here where we're hearing from democrats
4:48 am
that not having a job is a good thing. where do you fit in? >> we have to do things to create more jobs, especially for young people who are about to graduate from college. and i'm working really hard with some of the colleges within the district in which i hope to represent to see what they can do in terms of job training because when you look at ways of increasing people's economic independence, being able to make sure that they have a great job once they graduate puts them on the right path to create prosperity. >> are you prepared, the road for a female republican running has not proven to be an easy one. what's your game plan? >> i know that it will be very challenging. but i faced a lot of challenges during the course of my life and i'm very prepared to take on this challenge. i think that we need new ideas and fresh vision in politics and we need people who can stand firm on constitutional principles while bringing those principles to people who may not currently consider themselves
4:49 am
republicans. and i think that if we can do that, that puts us on the better path to being able to take a departure from politics as usual. >> we thank you very much for being with us this morning. so great to get to know you better. we'll be on the lookout. >> thank you so much for having me. thank you. tomorrow we're going to meet another political rising star. shane osborne, running for senate in oklahoma. and coming up, do you think your sweetheart would want this? >> you got me a blender? what are you trying to say? >> think again. the valentine's day don'ts. we're helping you out, coming up next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ho ho ho

really not happy with the job you have. that's what we were hearing on the sunday shows. >> it will give you more time to stay with your family. trey gowdy is bringing in a dose of reality. take a look at this. >> liberals and the democrats want you to believe is, well, you'll have more time to write poetry and you can sit around and figure out whether infinity is a number or just a concept. well, that's great until you try to go buy your grand kid a birthday present or try to pay the heating bill. go give your interpretation of a poem to the clerk. they're going to want money. >> how far you can get in the number pi? >> you work on that. >> i was hoping never to see that symbol again when i got in this job. let's talk about this because the government -- do you want to maybe sometimes work two jobs, hopefully temporarily in order to get ahead in life and make more money and have some security for colleges or anything else or vacation or car? whatever it is, it seems we're

terrorists? a move by the obama administration just made it easier for people with limited terror ties to be granted political asylum. is this the right move or a threat to our national security? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. joining me now to discuss. >> good morning. i'd like people to listen closely because i really do think it's a big, big threat to national security. even according to the "washington post," 70% of asylum applications are riddled with fraud. now the government is saying, if you gave terrorists limbed material support -- limited material support, you're open to become a united states citizen, which is really incredible. so let's look. when we're talking about this before, let's look at terrorists who have received asylum here in the united states. >> not just theoretical here? >> absolutely true. in 1993, the world trade center bombing, from pakistan. 1997 new york city bombing plot. he was a palestinian. another in 1993, he shot and
5:14 am
killed people at the c.i.a. headquarters from pakistan. abdi, the 2004 columbus shopping mall bombing plot, somali. and then dzhokhar tsarnaev and tamerlan tsarnaev, responsible for the 2013 bombing from chechnya, according to the f.b.i. >> this has happened, now it's going to be easier for those to be granted asylum? >> yes. they've wiped away the post-2001 rules that made it almost impossible if you had some affiliation with a terror organization. so now a bunch of these -- mostly democratic senators, are pitching the fact, well, there are some people that have given water or given sandwiches or something so innocuous to terrorist groups in the past and that's stopping them from becoming american citizens. they were giving ak-47s and sam missiles and giving plans and giving the ability to fly
5:15 am
airplanes into the world trade center. i think we need to consider a few scenarios. here is the first scenario. remember the movie, "lone survivor"? let's take a look at this and let's ask a question that the feds should be asking themselves >> we got two option. one, let them go. >> the second they run down there, we got taliban on our back. >> or cut them loose and we're going home. >> we do the right thing. >> isn't that how things work? >> now, in that movie, it depicts a young boy that went and ratted out the american seal team. >> exactly. >> all of them died but for one, famously in that movie. now under the new state department and dhs regulations, if you have a social, family or cultural obligation that causes you to provide limited material
5:16 am
support to terrorist organizations like the taliban depicted there, then you are eligible to become an immigrant. you are eligible to come to america. you are eligible to become an american citizen. so was that boy's activities the basis of a social, cultural, or family obligation? and some day should he be attending a state university here in the united states as a a newly branded american immigrant? those are the issues that we need to grapple with. you know, we say, well, we sound the alarm bells. unfortunately, this is an alarm bell that may need to be sounded here in the united states. who are these people? and when so many people are willing and watery of -- worthy of successors to the american dream, why do we have to look at people who gave limited material support to terrorists, however the government defines that?
5:17 am

so it happens once in a while and it's part of the job, but again, i feel safer doing that, believe it or not, than i am out on the interstate driving with my kids to school. it's incredible. these things make 10,000 horsepower. it will happen once in a while. but it's sort of cool when you make it through it okay. >> one of the things that we noticed in that video is the parachutes deploying miraculously since the rest of the car seemed to be destroyed. what would happen -- there are chances the parachutes might not have deployed what, would happen? >> it's part of any safety program, is those come out automatically if the driver is unconscious or can't get them out. if those hadn't come out, i probably wouldn't be here. it would have been ugly and i would have been off the end of the track and in a net at over 300 miles per hour and it would have been bad. thank god they got out. >> you're a quite successful driver. have you figured out what went
5:25 am
wrong? >> yeah. it backfired through the super charger and then it created a little boom under the body. and when it did that, the fiberglass body exploded off the car. >> do you have collision on the car, because i think it's pretty much wrecked? >> the owner, i think he's got good insurance hopefully. napa is a great sponsor. we got plenty of sports. >> i don't see it as your fault if you need a witness. >> we watched the replay. >> appreciate it. >> i'll be on your side. glad you're okay and here to talk about it and giving some publicity at the same time to the track where it happened and nhra in particular. thank you for joining us. >> thanks. next up, a fan mouths off and this basketball player shoves back. did he cross the line? >> should there be a code of decorum for fans, too? he showed up on the red carpet with a bag on his head. should we be worried about one

♪ rain drops keep falling on my
5:30 am
head ♪ ♪ just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed ♪ >> it is your shot of the morning. today is national umbrella day. we want to thank gust busters for our umbrellas. >> maria, you're outside in the wind. these things, you see all those dead umbrellas lying around in the street, these sustain up to 55 miles an hour wind gusts. >> that's right. they've been tested to sustain those winds and today is national umbrella day. it's actually held every year on february 10. it's already been happening for several years and by the way -- i have scotty here, trying to help me out. now i have my thick mic. the first umbrella was made more than 4,000 years ago and largely it was used to shield people from sunshine, not from the rain. we typically use it usually to shield us from the rain. so guys, this is pretty cool.
5:31 am
we have a bunch of umbrellas here. scotty, i have a navy one as well. a green one as well. on umbrella day, you're supposed to just celebrate by having an umbrella handy. >> we have to get you an intern. is there anybody, chris chulo, who doesn't do much inside. >> he'll hold an umbrella. >> all right. we want to go ahead and take a look at the weather conditions across the country as i hand over my umbrellas to scotty. here you go. and take my pink one, too. thank you. all right. scotty doing double duty. let's look at the high temperatures across the country. we have temperatures well below average yet again across portions of the midwest. minneapolis, temperatures in the single digits. in chicago, your high temperature today forecast to just be 10 degrees. this is all because we have a frontal boundary that pushed through that area and stalled
5:32 am
out across portions of the southeast, from texas to the carolinas and along that frontal boundary, we are expecting some winter weather throughout the night tonight and over the next several days through at least thursday. so this will be a prolonged period of time that you guys here can see some freezing rain, sleet, and even some snow accumulating at times. so we have winter weather advisories and winter storm watches posted. farther west, we've had a series of storm systems impacting this region with some lower elevation rain and mountain snow, winter weather advisories are posted across the washington cascades and also portions of the rockies. take a look at the forecast. more than a foot of snow possible across washington, lower elevations could see several inches of rain. let's head back inside. >> thanks a lot, maria. you have to expand that weather department. you need some help. texas tech played oklahoma state over the weekend. this became a national incident when this incident happened. one of the best players on
5:33 am
oklahoma state, marcus smart. and there he is on the fast break. you'll see him there go into the stands and fall into the stands, into the texas tech fan. one in particular uses that moment to scream in his face and call him a piece of crap. jeff force is a super fan, 50-year-old against marcus smart, 19 years old, and he pushed that player. he's suspended for three games because of that. he has since apologized because of that. but you got to be wondering, what are you screaming at him for if you're a 50-year-old so-called super fan, you're screaming at a 19-year-old kid because you want the other team to win? >> right. there are codes of conduct from the ncaa on the part of students, but perhaps something to be evaluated for the fans as well and how they should behave during a game. >> being a role model for your own kid. i'm going to take my kid to the game tone, and by the way, son, when that player falls in the stand, i'm going to yell at him and mock him. he's 19 years old. dad, i look up to you.
5:34 am
thank you so much. the man shoved by marcus smart, he released a statement saying, my actions last night were inappropriate aneflect myself or texas tech, a university i love dearly. i want to make it known that i did not use a racial slur of any kind. i guess he just threw that in there. >> here is -- by the way, 'cause he was accused of that. marcus smart said this. >> i have a lot of people that look up to me, a loft little kids -- lot of little kids, so once again, i truly apologize. this is not me and really do apologize for it and like i said, i take responsibility and the consequences that come with it. >> good for him. people yell at you, you know, you can walk away. let it roll off your back and walk away and maybe that would have been the response. he's still a young kid, he'll learn. especially in the nba, people yell at you all the time. >> you have to get used to that at some point. but he said he got caught up in the emotion. there is accountability today. there's a consequence with the suspension, lesson to be
5:35 am
learned. >> the other thing is, he's actually in the stands. so is that like he was here on the court and ran in the stands. he fell in there, he's right there and then he comes and pushes him because he's in with them. i totally get it. look at the tussle right there. you're in that mindset of you're in a battle. you hear someone screaming in your face, you're a piece of crap, i get it. even though there is no excuse for it, i totally get it. >> if you're within a certain distance from the -- >> he's laughing about it there. he's laughing. >> you look at college athletes, i think they're trying to do the best that they can and make school happen and make their school proud and to be taunted certainly by a grown man seems to be -- >> i was going to say on the bottom of my screen, on facebook, go to our page and weigh in. who do you think was at fault or both at fault? >> they were both at fault, but you have to give marcus smart a
5:36 am
pass. he's 19 years old playing in a high octane competition. he's known as elite, got an impeccable track record. >> what if do you that to the ref? >> the ref has to get it right. if not, he deserves to be pushed. i'm only kidding. >> we have to check this with heather. >> listen to this, it is not a matter of if, but when. an amazing declaration by a top u.s. law maker about the threat of terrorism at the olympics. >> i think this particular olympics i've never seen a greater threat certainly in my lifetime. i think there is a high degree probability that something is -- something will detonate, something will go off, but i think it's most likely to happen outside of the ring of steel in the olympic village. >> more than 70,000 russian security officers have sochi on lockdown. the u.s. with another 150 people

on the ground providing american security. their main concern, a black widow homicide bomb who are could potentially attack. an evacuation plan is in place to get american athletes out if need be. we told you about subway sandwiches using rubber in its bread. it now turns out they aren't the only company doing that. mcdonald's, arby's, wendy's and other grocery chains using this substance. new york senator chuck schumer says the odds are high that everyone has eaten this harmful chemical. he's calling on the f.d.a. to ban it. listen. >> comes to carcinogen, you can't be too careful. cancer is on the rise. we're never quite sure why. why not be safe rather than sorry and ban this stuff? >> schumer launching this campaign following an announcement from subway that it is voluntarily removing the chemical from its bread. australia and some european countries have already banned that chemical from foods there.
5:38 am
they picked the wrong target. a woman with a shotgun greeting robbers outside her home in los angeles. the homeowner, carla, said she was letting her dog out at night when she heard someone in her backyard. >> he said that crazy (bleep) has a gun and i shot it into the dirt, into the grass area. and to let him know, you know, i've got a gun and i know how to use it. >> way to go. she fired off a shot. that sent the guy running. he then took off in a car where another man was waiting. you know the actor shia labeouf? he had a recent string of bizarre behaviors and it's only getting stranger. he stormed out of a press conference for his new movie. he answered just one question about some of his scenes. listen to this. >> when the seagulls follow the troller, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. thank you very much.
5:39 am
>> okay. not sure what that was all about. but he showed up for the film's premiere in berlin wearing a paper bag over his head. it read, i am not famous anymore. that's the same sentence that he's been repeating on twitter since january 13. >> why doesn't he do summer stock? >> good question. >> there is community theater he can do. >> bunch of local high schools putting on shakespeare. >> he'd still be get be obamacare and able to pursue his dream. >> he made his money on transformer movies. coming up, democrats spent the weekend in full spin mode claiming millions of jobs lost due to obamacare might not be such a bad thing. are we on a dangerous path to destroying the american dream? we'll debate that next. >> and this purebred is pure hero. we've got the westminster dog who sniffed out cancer and saved his owner's life.

the 1,000-foot long ship first commissioned in 1965 was sold for just one penny for scrap metal. brian? democrats were out in full force this weekend defending the report that claims obamacare will kill millions of jobs. they say it's a good thing. now you're no longer tie to do a job you don't like jonah goldberg is here. that was the push, the spin by five separate surrogates this weekend. are you now sold? >> you always want to give them a slow golf clap for the effort. it's a spin. by their logic, the great depression was this great bounty of liberty because so many people were freed from their jobs. one serious point that is being lost, lots of republicans have talked about the problem of job lock. the problem is that what they propose, would actually free people up in a -- give people
5:45 am
vouch force buy their own health insurance, which it would be a good thing. what obamacare does is it taxes work. it tells people that if you go and seek an extra work or spouse tries to pick up part-time work and you make too much money, you'll lose your subsidies for obamacare. in effect it's subsidizing nonwork, which is not the republican approach and is not the way you should try to fix job loss. >> which is so interesting because it would free up businesses on their bottom line if insurance was possibly somewhere else. but you got to make that insurance more affordable and portable, buy across state lines. that's what you're saying john mccain had brought up and some are saying republicans are hypocrites for criticizing this now. >> but they're not hypocrites. we can both agree something is a problem. as i put in my column, both my daughter and i agree she needs a new hobby. that doesn't mean i have to buy her a team of lions for her to become a lion tamer. we can disagree about how to fix a problem while agreeing that something is a problem.
5:46 am
the republicans had all these proposals that would make it possible for people to decouple from work and still have insurance and have portability and democrats attacked them because they said it wouldn't do enough to fix the problems of the uninsured. and that's the hidden story in this cbo report. according to the same cbo report that talked about the lost jobs, it also says that in ten years, we'll have 31 million people still uninsured. barak obama sold obamacare in 2009 by promising to fix the problem of 30 million people being uninsured. in fact, the one problem democrats said they really wanted to fix is actually going to get worse. why are we opinioning $1.2 trillion and blowing unthe entire health care sector? >> and that's the point. you could argue the republicans should be arguing. okay, if you don't like the 2.5 deincentivizing work, you want to debate that, fine. how about the fact that people aren't going to be insured 'cause up to this point, if you have a problem with obamacare, you don't want poor people to be able to go to the doctor.
5:47 am
that's the way it's been portrayed. >> right. it's like people touting how the war over poverty has been so great even though 50 years later it's still going on. it's like nailing down jello. wherever you try to hold the defenders of obamacare accountable, they move the goal post. they switch the rationale. you know that if a cbo report had come out and said that it was going to create an additional 2.5 million jobs, all those same spinners on the sun shows would be out there taking credit and celebrating and saying how incredible and wonderful this is. you have to be impressed by their willingness to say that a further decline in labor participation in a country with catastrophic underand unemployment, for them to celebrate that as a success is remarkable hoot spa and amazing how so many people in the main stream media are buying it hook, line and sinker n they did this weekend. and it seemed great to most of

5:54 am
confirmed breast cancer. and here is the crazy part of the story is that number one, i had had a mammogram five months earlier, totally clean. digital mammogram. and i wasn't due to go to another one for six months because one year later. meanwhile, by the time they detected it, it was stage two and three centimeters large. >> so you would have gone six more months. >> god only knows totally what would have happened. >> saved you. >> he saved my life. he really did. we always think what could have happened if i -- if he hadn't been in bed with us? >> does it show you should listen to your husband more? >> brian, you're killing me. >> i love the campaign. they started pulling up article articles. >> you're looking at this dog, he saved your wife. >> absolutely. >> that has to be emotional when you see him. >> we got to show him and
5:55 am
everything else. this just came out of nowhere. incredible. >> now he's been shown for six years, right? >> he's been showing since he was six months old. 2 1/2 years. >> what do you expect this weekend? >> best in show. >> he's ranked ninth right now in the country, first in new york. big day tomorrow, troy. >> 9:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. fingers crossed and our breeder kelly is in. his official name so you know it is grand champion, rain dance led zeppelin of marquee. >> really? >> he's a life saver at thend of that. >> have you been able to pick up the scent of anybody else? >> no, not really. >> no, but i heard stories and the article that was written about us that talked about this organization that says that dog december actually have very,
5:56 am
very high sense of smell. >> we are hoping for everything. just having him compete is fantastic. >> a lot of fun. >> let's hope he wins. >> go, troy! best of luck to you. >> back in a moment. >> nice meeting you guys this year, i'm trying the protein thing with real protein.
